"We have an Inside Left who'll turn them inside out!"
4 July 2018 | by shakercoolaSee all my reviews

A marvellous documentary that was a long time coming for a certain British audience of football followers. Nottingham Forest, a football team languishing in England's second tier made achievements in football that have never been equalled, not even by Leicester City FC in recent times. What makes this documentary work is that it's a story about the unlikely winner, and a tale about personailities: a team of yet unproven talent led by a bombastic figure who was was ridiculed for his abrasive, forthright opinions, Brian Clough. It was he, and his Assistant Peter Taylor, who drive the narrative with force and panache. The film concentrates on the psychology of sport, the simple methods of man-management and organisation and the courage of the footballers to believe their dreams can come true. A wealth of amusing anecdotes from former players play as a humorous subversion of the modern day game and its perceived excesses and strict club management of its player's reputations. The answer to success has always been there all along: team spirit. Where many football documentaries appeal to their own supporters mostly, this film has a wider appeal. There is an interesting epilogue to the film about modern footballers in context of the game in the 1970s.
